Book review: Once a Gypsy by Danica Winters

Once a Gypsy   by Danica Winters
Interesting story and the legends that the book follows. I usually only read contemporary romance and as this is a bit out my normal genre I found it refreshing for a change.
Learning about being blessed the ability of psychic makes you think.
Some of the slang words take a bit to get used to but after a while it's common.  Helena is there to pick up her father when the old man that comes out of the prison approaches her. She finally realizes it is him after the phrase he tells her.
She is so devastated and she's a traveler. Love details and how it's written to make you feel like you can see what the author is seeing in her eyes. So picturesque. Love learning new words and about different new places to me.
She's not sure she wants to work at the estate but while their father was in prison their mother borrowed a lot of money from others who'd be calling to collect any day... Graham has made it possible to hire the both of them, her father will do handyman chores and she will prepare the house for the onslaught of guests that are to arrive soon.
Helena can see the future and some scenes take her by surprise....she can't wait to take her exams and go to the university.
Graham has to divulge the secret he's been hiding from her-he's not sure she's ready to hear it...
Love herbs and cures some have and learning about them. Enjoyed this book so much I can't wait for the next one.
I received this book from the author in exchange for my honest review

Thank you for the awesome review! I enjoy it when a book is outside of what you normally read and yet you LOVED it! :)It makes me feel as if I've done my job as an author in creating a story that draws you in.
As always, happy reading!
